27th Annual Gold Leaf Awards

The Foil & Specialty Effects Association (FSEA) revealed the honorees in the 27th Annual FSEA Gold Leaf Awards Competition during the FSEA Online Learning Experience, held virtually June 23-24, 2020.

“Like many other associations, the FSEA had to find new ways of doing business during the pandemic,” said FSEA Executive Director Jeff Peterson, “We are thrilled to be able to honor our award winners with a video reveal that feels very much like the ceremony we would have held at our traditional in-person event. Congratulations to all of our winners!”

Entries were received from countries around the world, including the US, Canada, Denmark and Taiwan. Gold, silver and bronze winners were honored in 37 categories. Best of Show and two Best of Show Honorable Mention honorees also were revealed.
